07:37 AM ET 12.10 | Avery Young is no slouch himself, but he says left tackle Greg Robinson is in a different world. The mountain of a man who anchors the left side of Auburn's offensive line stands 6-foot-5, tips the scales at more than 320 pounds and can supposedly do back flips. [Young calls Robinson] one of the most athletic linemen he's ever seen, and Young's older brother, Willie, is a defensive end with the Detroit Lions. "Greg's a beast," Young said. ... ESPN draft guru Mel Kiper has moved Robinson up to No. 14 on his Big Board, an indicator that Robinson could have a shot at top-10 status if he decides to enter the draft in April. "I've really been putting it off," Robinson said. "I've just been talking to my family about it, it's a big thing. But I haven't made a decision yet. I haven't had time."

He is going to the NFL where he will make even more money that at Auburn.

Take the money and backflip all the way the bank, young man.

If he is good enough, why not bolt to the NFL??

December 10, 2013  09:22 AM ET

He plays for Auburn, he already has enough money.

December 10, 2013  09:24 AM ET

I agree. Is he good enough to go in the 1st round?? OT's usually don't go in the 1st round, unless they are very good.

Yep and that is why Greg Robinson might be a 2/3 rounder. :-)

Not only Tebow!! You can add VY and Leinart to that list.

VY turned into a 'head case' and Leinart unfortunately 'partied' his way out of being a successful NFL QB.

No you can't . Those two at least justified a first round draft pick at the time. Hindsight being what it is then its obvious they done bust. But did anyone think TT was a first round talent and not a sideshow except the guy who lost his job.

I blame Fisher for VY... Well part of the blame...

And I dont think Shanahan and RG3 gonna work out..

And yeah, Tebow shouldnt have been a 1st rounder

December 10, 2013  11:23 AM ET

Good OTs are picked in the 1st round all the time, if you ask me. Really good ones with the prototypical size. There's a reason the LSWho fans were mad about Robinson out of nowhere signing with auburn. They really needed him. He's really good. I'm pretty sure Robinson was the Louisiana guy that everyone said was a lock to LSU.

December 10, 2013  11:41 AM ET

If he can get the $$, he should take it. Lot's of feel-good stories a/b players that come back, but people don't talk about the ones that lost millions by doing it.

NFL $$ = Game changer. Take it and go

This is dead on!

Both were great CFB QBs and showed the talent needed for the pros. TT was a fullback or TE and everyone knows it but him.
